Christian Bale's celebratory kisses
Christian Bale celebrated his Critics' Choice Award win with a "lovely make-out session" with his 'Big Short' director and screenwriter.
The 41-year-old actor shared a celebratory kiss with wife Sibi Blazic when he was announced as the winner of Best Actor in a Comedy, and then shared a smooch with filmmaker Adam McKay and writer Charles Randolph as he made his way to the stage.
Picking up the prize, he said: "That was just a lovely make-out session with my life and with Adam and with Charles.
"We all really got to know each other very well on this film."
And when the cast and crew later took to the stage at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, Christian and Adam shared another kiss.
The director quipped in his speech: "That's collaborative love between Christian and I. Don't judge it. It's what fuels movies like this."
In his own speech, Christian hailed the filmmaker as "absolutely phenomenal, brilliant and funny" and also paid a funny tribute to his wife and their daughter, 10-year-old Emmeline.
Christian - who also has a 17-month-old son, Joseph, with Sibi - said: "[Thank you] first of all, my wife. It's so lovely to be able to play dress up for a living, and she holds everything together whilst I get to go play dress up.
"My daughter as well, who kicks me in the nuts just like my wife does, keeping me on the straight and narrow."
After thanking people who had worked on the movie and his own "team", he closed with a dedication to his "beautiful kids".
